Does the newer R5 have this issue?
Dunno what you mean by teeth. R5 should have a solid build. Though on R4 the sturdiness of the mobo panel has something to be desired but it's a bit panel of a sheet metal, it only gets so good without excessive grooves to reinforce structural integrity. I have regular round cables and they fit on R4 ok, you just gotta clean it up and there is no need to force the side panel to close at all. R5 probably has even more space.
Core is a core, basic case, cheap built. But what more do you need from a metal box that is static just sitting somewhere.

On a lot of cases, the top and bottom of the side panels have "teeth" that slot into the case. Thats what I mean by that.

Air cooled by 3 Noctua 120mm, 2 intake in front and 1 exhaust back. Plus those in the CPU-cooler, GPU(GTX 970) and PSU.

A head up... The Genie VIII only takes 4-pins (PWM?) connectors but have plenty of them 4 case fans+2 CPU fans connectors.
For me it was a relief as the old MB also only took 4-pins fans, didn't need to replace perfectly good fans after just one year of use...


Thank you for the reply, I did pick up all pwm fans as I did get the mb first to check it out plus I have a SilverStone PWM fan hub should I need it..

Ah the side panel? Yes they have teeth on FD cases that bite into the case frame and the panel slides to close. I have no bulging on R4 with round thick PSU cables, you just have to organize the cables in any case and make it all fit. If you have flat cables you shouldn't have a problem in cases with smaller space behind the mobo.

My Define S should be showing up today for my new build. I'm hoping Ontrac doesn't damage it, I haven't had much luck with them.

They're incredibly well packaged, you should be fine. thumb.gif

It's a paper box with polystyrene as usual. As long as they don't drive it over it should be fine. It's not like they are going to throw it around when it weights over 10kg.

Lol they will... trust me.

The gap between the case and the box is large and the polystyrene is nice and thick. It should get there okay.
